Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Communication Error from ECM to VSC Invalid Serial Data Received (P163181)

Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual / Engine / Cruise Control / Dynamic Radar Cruise Control System(for Gasoline Model) / Communication Error from ECM to VSC Invalid Serial Data Received (P163181)

DESCRIPTION

The ECM sends signals such as dynamic radar cruise control operation signals, brake operation demand signals and buzzer operation demand signals to the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) when the dynamic radar cruise control is operating. Therefore, if the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) detects a communication error with the ECM, it sends a malfunction signal back to the ECM.

DTC No.

Communication Error from ECM to VSC Invalid Serial Data Received

While the vehicle speed is 5 km/h (3 mph) or more and the dynamic radar cruise control system is operating, the ECM continuously receives a logic error signal from the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) for approximately 1 second or more.

  • CAN communication system
  • ECM
  • Skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)

Does not come on

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • First check the CAN communication system by following How to Proceed with Troubleshooting. After checking that there are no malfunctions in the CAN communication system, proceed with troubleshooting.
